Regular unleaded gasoline jumped as much as $1.20 a gallon at some gas
stations in Toronto Canada between yesterday and today as a result of
greedy, opportunistic operators using the Katrina hurricane US oil shortage
as their excuse. That product is now about $6 CDN per imp gallon.
I needed almost a full tank (a 10 gallon fill) of diesel yesterday in my
'91, 1.6TD Jetta and found a station that had a price somewhat better than
anyone else on my parts trip to Barrie for my genset project yesterday. I
filled up for 92.9/litre. That's $4.22 CDN per IMP gallon. What a bargoon!
:( I don't know what diesel prices here did today as I didn't go out. I
logged 503 miles on that tank and it was not empty yet on exactly 10 gallons
imperial. That was 50.3 MPIG. I sure am glad I bought that car and
completed the repairs necessary to put it on the road when I did!
